Meal times can be mad times. De-stress family dinners by getting your excited youngsters involved in the cooking to keep them busy. It’s also an entertaining way for them to keep writing.
Make the letter
Write a recipe
Whose place is it?
Put some music on, dance around, and get your child to count out different actions with you – like 10 hops or 16 jumps – in time to the music. It’s a good way to use up some excess energy too!
Try spotting shapes together – how many circles, triangles or squares can your child spot in the room. After they’ve named the shape, they could look for other items with the same shape.
Choose a letter of the alphabet, then ask your child to write down a food, an animal, a name, and a place that begins with this letter.
